It first got a lot of buzz March last year with a live premier by AN21 in Montreal on the One Last Tour, and then a radio premier on Steve Angello’s essential mix, but has since remained largely dormant. AN21 himself has been pretty quiet since his 2012 album “People Of The Night” alongside Max Vangeli, but this year has stated he will be bringing more music and more solo efforts. Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman had a late surge in 2013 with their “POTN” remix and then “Silver Sun”, but have just been waiting on tracks to be released, like the all too often requested “Payback” alongside the bossman himself, Steve Angello.
“Rebel” is the next best thing with an upbeat progressive sound with well crafted builds and crescendoes grounded in a punchy bass line and rumbling horn. Man would it be crazy to be able to listen to Steve Angello’s hard drive for a few hours, the unreleased treasures he must have in there, one cannot even begin to imagine.
Beatport: AN21, Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman – Rebel

It has been close to a year since “Rebel” was first premiered by AN21 on the One Last Tour in Montreal and then received its first radio play from Steve Angello on his essential mix later that month. Both AN21 & Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman had quiet years in 2013 on the release front, concentrating on DJ sets and getting plenty of music ready for 2014. For Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman “Rebel” is only the beginning of what should be their best year yet that will include “Payback” alongside Steve Angello, which may come sooner than you know. The full version of “Rebel” will hit Beatport on January 20th courtesy of Size Records. Not a fan of modern art, but the artwork on this track is pretty baller. Big ups Size.

The opening track of Size label boss Steve Angello’s sets over the past few months, “Ulysses” has the power and dexterity you expect from a release on Size. As the owner of the increasingly influential Megaton Records, Mike Hawkins becomes a bigger name in dance music, and here he teams up with Pablo Oliveros Marcus Schossow to create a bouncy bass line and long, riveting melodic builds. The Scandinavian connection is strong here with 2 Danes and 1 Swede on the track.

The good guys of Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman are finally here with a release in 2013. The duo are no stranger to big remix requests, like their Miike Snow remix and they take full advantage of the opportunity on this one. The original was a much more melodic effort from AN21 & Max Vangeli as they got ready for their album, but Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman inject their own big-room flavor to make this track relevant once again and put it right back into DJ radio shows and sets, as we enter the last few months of the year. Coming up, at some point, they have their second release on Size, “Rebel” with AN21 and many more.

Henrix has been busy touring this summer, so that has meant he’s been quiet on the release front, (if he wasn’t, well, then BT would have the answer for you). However, he has managed to find the time to come together with fellow Miami producer Adrien Mezsi, a guy who I have kept an eye for a while now, waiting for that spark to happen, and oh man did it happen. “Raverz” has been a part of Steve Angello’s sets since Tomorrowland, and you can expect that to continue well into the future. His people want it to be a mystery, but nobody’s being fooled here. Just like “Hit It”, this one is coming out on Size Records. When? Nobody knows, but for now watch the preview from Creamfields.
For all of our Electric Zoo attendees tomorrow in under 14 hours (ahhhhhh), Henrix will be playing MainStage west to start Saturday bright and early at 11:10am. So shake off the cobwebs and get there early to hear this unreleased jam, amongst other massive tunes dropped by Mr. Henriques.

Axtone has been busy towards the end of this summer. They have released the original mix of “Reverie” and “Starlight (Could You Be Mine)”, while also previewing the CLMD remix of Discopolis “Committed to Sparkle Motion” (coming on Monday) and revealing info on releases from Axwell, Otto Knows, Thomas Gold & Kryder. Michael Calfan has a strong history with remixes, taking tracks like “Shewolf” and “Momentum” and eliciting their full potential. With this one, the Frenchman keeps much of the essence of the original, while injecting vocal chants and mixes up the timing of the drop with added melodic elements. Look for more from Axtone as the label seems to only getting started as Axwell, like Steve Angello, shows life post-SHM. Your move Seb.
